Sleep woes

Mar 09, 2012 - 2 comments

So I put Ben into his own room over a week ago, and I wish I put him in it a lot sooner, because he keeps waking up crying every few hours looking for us. We are exhausted, its like the good old days when he was a newborn waking every few hours for a feed, at least he had an excuse then.  Really hope he gets used to his own room soon, going to try him with a night light on tonight & see if it makes a difference. I'll try anything at this stage.

Ohhh noo!! I must say we are truly blessed With a good sleeper! She is 5 months and been in her crib since she was 2 months....do you have a sound machine?? They work wonders.... in the beginning she woke up quite a bit, now at 5 months she waks up very rare and if she does we go in and put her pacy in her mouth... dont talk to her or stimulate her when we go in...and we then pat her for just a minute or so... it usually works... I pray he gets better for you guys!!

Thank you so much for your comment! you are so lucky to have a good sleeper, this little man has always kept us up one way or the other, my mum says he takes after me, i was a bad sleeper when i was a baby too, so it must run in the family! He has been waking up less since, so I'm hoping its the start of him getting used to his own room now, fingers crossed!  We got him a sound machine, but it just seems to make him hyper more than anything else, but it works to get him to stop crying though, so it wasn't a complete waste of money :-)
